Warehousing, Storage and Distribution (Modern Apprenticeship) SVQ3

What is special about this course?

The course is special and is different from normal college courses. You'll study from your workplace to gain an SCQF Level 6 qualification. There is no day release because our assessors visit you at work instead.

Candidates should be in a job or placement where they are carrying out relevant tasks and responsibilities, which allow then to gather the required evidence. No prior qualifications are required to undertake this qualification, although experience or relevant qualifications in Freight Logistics would be an advantage.

Progress your career and open up promotion possibilities.These are suitable for a wide range of large and small retail organisations, for example Fish Farms and Logistics Companies.
